Host moms and dads have a lot of interesting occupations, and habits. On this blog, we’ve got police officers, massage therapists, teachers, managers, writers, dog breeders, and more. But up until this comment, below, I never thought any of us host parents … well, here’s the comment:
This isn’t really to ask for advice, more like a question/rant:
Ny HM has this weird (and annoying) habit of stripping down and walking around in her underwear.
For example, yesterday, she came home early and ate dinner with the kids, and she spilled some sauce on her nightdress, so she literally just peeled it off right there in the kitchen and walked to her bedroom in her underwear. She does this ALL the time!
Does anybody else do this in their house with the AP around? I live in an independent room on the top floor of their building, so it’s not like I live with them, I think it’s strange (and really really awkward; I wish she would stop) that she does it even when I’m around.
Anyway, I’m leaving in another 3 weeks, so I don’t care, but I just wanted to know what others thought! :)
Pa host mom of Two au-pairs was first on the scene, and offers this advice:
I haven’t heard this one before HP stripping down, you more so hear on the blog about HP speaking to the Ap to dress in appropriate clothing.
The only advice I would give if you don’t feel comfortable now speaking to her about, tell her upon your departure how it made you feel so the next AP doesn’t have to deal with this situation too.
Parents, any suggestions for this au pair?
